f-cell+HFC 2020 welcomes Silver Sponsors Ballard Power Systems, MANN+HUMMEL and Toyota Canada
January 27, 2020
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – January 27, 2020 – The Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) and Peter Sauber Agentur (PSA) are pleased to announce the first three Silver Sponsors of the upcoming f-cell+HFC 2020 The Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Event in Vancouver, Canada, on April 1+2, 2020.
Ballard Power Systems, MANN+HUMMEL and Toyota Canada will be joining f-cell+HFC 2020 as Silver Sponsors, providing prominent industry speakers, chairing conference sessions and exhibiting in the event’s international trade fair. Additionally, Toyota Canada will host its Ride & Drive event, offering participants the chance to test drive their latest Fuel Cell vehicles.
The f-cell+HFC 2020 The Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Event, projected to be the largest of its kind nationwide, is designed to accelerate the fight against climate change by connecting international industry executives with senior government leaders, investors and researchers. Together, we will work to accelerate and scale-up projects that can economically produce infrastructural hydrogen, integrate hydrogen fuel transport and storage options such as power-to-gas, and identify paths to support the near-term demand for increased hydrogen fuel cell use in commercial industrial applications such as forklifts, heavy-duty trucks and buses, marine and building applications.
Held under the patronage of the Canadian Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (CHFCA) and the Peter Sauber Agentur (f-cell), f-cell+HFC 2020’s interactive business platform will serve to facilitate participant engagement around the use of hydrogen, as an energy vector and fuel cells. Participants will be able to build their networks through a range of plenaries, conference sessions and workshops, while viewing the latest products and services in the International Trade Fair.
In addition to full conference passes, trade fair tickets will be available for those who want to meet our Silver Sponsors in person. For more information, please visit https://hyfcell.com. Become a part of the conversation on social media with #fcellHFC.
